“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.” – Neil Armstrong (1930-2012)

Photo Gallery Five

Fresh Brainz photo galleries are usually about funny pictures, but this one marks a somewhat poignant moment.

After 18 months of good service, our workhorse camera has suffered a sensor malfunction and can no longer take photographs.

Here is its last collection of photos before the band went silent...

(2007) Sony DSC-S600

Last catch of the day

...and this is the last photo it took, a clusters of flowers in bloom - photo number 2230.

Here is the portrait of the machine itself.


Yes I feel a little sad. Only geeks will feel sad when a machine dies.

On the upside, Fresh Brainz will continue to bring you many pretty photos with a new camera!

The Nikon Coolpix L5, which I won in a photo competition (using the S600, no less).

And the first assignment for the L5?

A trip to Sungei Buloh wetland reserve, coming right up!
